In September 2015 there was finally a fitting celebration of grass roots rugby in England. A gathering of 750 members of clubs from around the country met in Twickenham’s Rose Room to honour all that is good and great in the game at all levels, mini-rugby all the way up to the professional game.


“It was the first of its kind. It was a monumental success.
It was a magical and memorable event.
Job done? – No way! Time to take it the next level!”
Chris Robshaw, Event Ambassador
